Just an avid birdwatcher these days. B.S. in Biology minor chem.. I would take bird courses as electives.

I just couldnt resist, hate to see my beloved Python used so shabbly.

BTW I watched the Stegner PBS show also. Very good. Of all the conservationists I'm least well read on him. Must change that.

Well thanks for the outstanding support! Much better than my tweety bird. And, like you, I love MPython, and was responding to quickly or I would have gotten it right...damn.

There are lots to choose from, as they covered in the show, and of course, I just stole most of my quotes from him/there in my few posts about him today...100th Merid was the first of his, and my fav, but that has a lot to do with being a desert rat myself. I knew a fair bit about him, but hadn't realized til the show how many folks he influenced.

Wife and I thoroughly enjoyed that program.

I was a bit quick also. I should try to not post from work.

More important than irregular's very unwitty use of MPython, is the shabby treatment of JOTS post.
Good luck JOTS, throw in a bone when ya can.

Thanks for the Stegner input. One of his Collected stories look good to start with. Arid Lands looks intersting, Id like to know more about Powell. I miss the desert. I used to hike the Superstitions alot as a teenager.

Turdus Migratorius was the first scientific, taxonomy, bird name I learned from grandpa. So funny to a little boy made it easy to remember. I only remember a couple dozen scientific names these days.
